What is Product Testing?

Adhering to global government standards of safety and regulations before delivering products to consumer market is crucial. Not only does it ensure your products’ quality but it minimizes injuries resulted from hazardous chemicals, substandard production or design flaws.

With the ever-changing and increasingly stringent regulations and quality requirements, it is difficult for retailers, importers and manufacturers to comply with the latest standards by one-time testing or in-house testing solely. Third-party testing organisations like Bureau Veritas can help support as conformity assessment body. 

With over 20 year testing experience, Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services is a reliable world-leading testing body offering a wide range of solutions and extensive coverage of capabilities.
